OVERVIEW

We need communities that work for everyone, where the roadmap to opportunity and systems that protect people are clear and available to all. Therefore, we provide support to organisations in Denmark that provide innovative solutions to improve the lives of socially vulnerable and marginalised groups at the community level. As well as supporting not-for-profit organisations in Denmark, we also support organisations in Greenland and the Faroe Islands.

In 2018 Oak Foundation Denmark made 24 grants totalling USD 5.57 million.

OUR STRATEGY

We partner with foundations and organisations that have a direct impact on people’s lives. We understand that social change takes time and is not a linear process. We believe that we can achieve social change by supporting broad, professional, holistic and innovative approaches that tackle issues at the root.

 

To this end, most of our grant-making includes support for strategies and approaches that address challenges at community level. We also contribute to strengthening or building organisational capacity. We provide funding to both large and grassroots organisations.

OUR FUNDING PRINCIPLES

WHERE WE FUND

(1) work to solve family violence by: providing shelters for families; and preventing stalking and violence
